Remembering September 11th!

Eleven years have gone by, but it still feels like yesterday!  Today we remember the many heroes and innocent lives lost on  Tuesday, September 11, 2001.


I was still working as a Benefits Consultant and was working in Naples, FL. I for one believe everything in life happens for a reason. Our client was a chain of hotels in Boca Raton and Naples. The clients' Health Insurance Company representative was in Naples instead of the World Trade Center that day because our benefits enrollment was delayed two weeks. His colleague took over his New York schedule that day - an assignment in the World Trade Center. Minutes before the plane struck he realized he had no cash and stepped out of the building to get cash from a nearby bank. That need for cash caused him to not be inside the building when the first plane struck at 8:45 a.m. Just the same, a fellow School of Business Industry graduate walked in for her first day of work in one of the Towers - she was fortunate enough to make it out unharmed. The stories of those who woke up late, got stuck in traffic, decided to call in sick could go on and on...yet sadly many did not have that story to tell.

Many lost their lives that day. Many became heroes that day. They are gone but definitely not forgotten. I've learned that no one is promised tomorrow: We must live, love and enjoy each day with purpose and with no regrets. We must also learn to cherish our family, our friends and our loved ones. Life is too short and quite unpredictable! Let's remember how important we are to each other!
Until next time,
